Worthless wood first try
« on: January 08, 2015, 12:07:53 AM »
Well had a snow day from work today as all the roads were closed. Figure why not make a worthless blank as I just got all the stuff in the mail last week. Stabilized a piece of spalted maple burl last night and today tried adding some alumilite and tossed it in the pressure pot. Turned out alright I think!

What are you using to cast it in?  I'm looking to try it.  I read the tutorial, and he used PVC pipe.  I was wondering if there was a release agent used in order to remove it?  Looks cool BTW!

Just saw this now!  I made molds to cast in out of cutting board material..  First I stabilized the wood using a vacuum chamber then I Cast it in the pressure pot with the alumilite.  There are some good youtube vids on how to do this actually!  I never had to use a release agent.  This blank anded up gettin glued to my mandrel because I was an idiot haha so didnt work out so hott but learned a lesson and have made a couple calls since that turned out well!
